Posted December 25, 2007: "A fighting mad Ryu Hayabusa easily shreds his way toward the top of this path."
I watched it in HD and the surroundings does not look that impressive. Bland textures. I hope they improve it a bit. Japanese developers are falling behind.
This is one of the games Im very excited about..Ryu looks to be more responsive to attack and has better combos, and sadly yes! the environment could have been more detail but I really dont care about it when im fighting Ninjas I dont have time to stop and say hay! look at that birdy =D
You can't make the judgment from a video. You need to play the game in real life to know how good it really looks. That goes for all games.
I'm also very excited about it and from the looks the gameplay will be phenomenal.
Im guessing this isn't going to be:
It seems to be getting worse.. You figure they would have just improved on sigma visually. But it looks like a Time-Crisis engine game now or PDZ.
The lighting is terrible as well. No dirt/falling leaves. No DOF?
well because of the not so hot visuals i would assume, that it just have to run in 1080p minimum!!!
Videos on the internet actually look better to me then when you actually play a game on your big screen. I have a 32inch HDTV 720p and the games always look better on the internet stream because of the small size. NG2 doesn't look impressive here. Thanks for confirming that DMC4 is better.
better than sigma, Its almost like they just made another one for the sake of making it. Without retouching the engine.
I mean its a 15 hour game on its own, multiplayer would be fun though, although.. who would you be..
Heres to hoping this game vastly improves in the near future. Right now, its looking terrible.
Or was looking better than Sigma not a point?
the game engine is running smooth, the animation looks good, I admit there is still work to be done with the lighting and polish it a bit but the graphics look better than Sigma and the game isn't finished yet, best of all it isn't a "remake" of a old xbox game, its a brand new story, with brand new charachters, monsters, and weapons with losts of blood= NG2 is a true sequel to an amazing game....a game btw that has some of the most rewarding hardcore gameplay ever. ha ha sonykids don't let your jealousy shine so bright, lmfao=
Say I was that type of gamer.. who envied other systems games. Here is that list:
Gears of War
And thats all I'd want from the 360. These are the titles that I'd risk RROD for.
Games on the absolute bottom of my 'want' list? NG is a great franchise. One of the best action titles ever. But as far as "Man I wish I had a 360 to play that!" Nah, not at all. Let me check again, Nope. I'm on a graphical + gameplay high right now. One that is on the lines of finally getting Crysis recognizing my cores. Crysis is definitely what everyone had in mind for "next-gen" Dozens of PS3 titles still have that new system smell with them as well. And they make me stop to actually stare at the game like its art or a cgi-pre-render.
Doesn't seem like they are going to pull off any of that from what we have seen for NG. Lighting isn't one of the "final touches" you cut on for a game either. NG2 has more defined chracter models though, I will say that. But without proper lighting/enviornment/post processing. Its very lacking right now.
Everyone said the same things about Mass Effect as well. They didn't pull any 180's direction wise. These things are done, they will be polished a bit. Which doesn't mean 'OK LETS USE HDRI Lighting NOW' in month X of developing.
vid looks good... but i know some of those camera angles are going to piss me off.
The game is coming along well and looking better every time I see it! My only wish is that the fanboys would quit trying to debunk this title and compare it to sigma which is silly of them. This game will be good so let's grow up and quit with the mine is still better then yours tatics!
Most of people who are complaining about it aren't even going to get it so it's good to know that alot of people who purchase this game won't be disappointed.
Doesn't look any better than Sigma lol looks like Itagaki got pwned by a noob as he called him haha
three things make me really interested in this game, the antagonist of this story will be an elite ninja just as like Hayabusa (talk about allot of fast bloody action at the end of the game), the slew of weapons you get to try out, active AI and complex beasts, plus theirs going to be a new leading lady itagaki hasn't shown anything yet, but expect a knock out with huge knockers.
graphics look nice and i'm betting it's going to get better, i don't expect this game to be out soon, itagaki said mid to late 08, so anything good or new can happen in between.
Yeah I expect big things and improvements with this title as well. This game is going to be gourgeous once released and i'm just surprised how far along they are already! Some really underestimate games for 360 but they really sale and this even though we don't see it as huge right now will push systems. I can't wait to here what ms has in store for 2008 and I hope you all had a great christmas!
God of War 3, B!TCHES!!!!!!!!!!!
Ninja Gaiden 2 is among my top 3 most anticipated games of 2007 but this video makes me a bit worried. The enviroment and specially the leafs look really bland and last-gensih.
Hope the final game is much better looking.
I just have to agree with everything you said, but I know team ninja is better known for their great graphics so Im sure these videos are just for the gameplay, a lot of these textures like the wood seem flat and unfinished so kudos to team ninja for fleshing out the gameplay then going to the graphics.
Super point. Some of the graphic assets in the video may indeed be placeholders while the team works and perfects the gameplay. When GP is done then they'll focus on graphics. If that happens then the final game will be as mindblowing as original was on Xbox.
I don't care if the game doesn't look any better than the first Ninja Gaiden on XBox, it's still a new Ninja Gaiden game and it's going to be sweeter than Megan Fox(Transformers!) modeling her Vicky's! Well, maybe not that sweet, but it's still gonna rock, it's gonna pwn some noobs, it's gonna blister thumbs, and be one of the all time classic 360 games!
